Dammit Janet - S2-E15

Continuity mistake: When Stewie is in his room talking to Rupert and himself out loud about Janet we see that Rupert is on the left side of Stewie's pillow. When the camera pans over to Brian who overhears Stewie's musings, after Brian makes fun of Stewie the camera pans back and Rupert is gone. There is also a quick tete-a-tete on the color of Janet's eyes and the final shot is on Stewie and his crib and yet no Rupert to be found. (00:07:20)

The King Is Dead - S2-E7

Continuity mistake: During the end of Peter's "revised" version of "The King and I" right after the scene where Brian and Peter kung-fu fight, the scene transitions to the next scene where a bunch of girls with bikinis on are surrounding Peter. During the transition, a girl appears out of nowhere. She is blonde and is leaning on Peter. (00:19:10)

Fifteen Minutes of Shame - S2-E12

Other mistake: Right at the end, when Peter takes out the Bible, the front cover is on the wrong side, i.e the back.

There's Something About Paulie - S2-E16

Plot hole: If the groom didn't know who Lois was but had a picture of her, how could he have known that she was at the wedding so he could place the bomb in the blue sedan? If he had put the bomb in their car while they were still at home, they both would have been blown up. So this means he placed the bomb in the car at the wedding. He didn't know however that Lois was there until the end, where he caught up with them and told them not to start the car. Had he known earlier, he wouldn't have been arguing with his bride about the hit occurring during their honeymoon. (00:20:05 - 00:21:35)

He's Too Sexy for His Fat - S2-E17

Continuity mistake: Just before the pest control team leaves for the Griffins', we see the black team member holding a shotgun in his hand. After showing Logan in shot, it returns to the black member and he's now holding what looks to be an MP5 machine gun. In the following shot as he starts to slide down the pole, the gun is once again a shotgun.

Continuity mistake: In 'Wasted Talent', near the end of the Chumba-Wumba song about Joe being in the wheelchair, the Chumba-Wumbas wheel Joe till he is about 15 yards away from the gate. Then as the shot cuts, Joe and the Chumba-Wumbas are standing right next to the gate. How did this happen? Nobody moved him. (00:10:30)

Continuity mistake: When Peter, Anne Frank, and a group of people (presumably Anne Frank's family) are hiding from the Nazis, Anne Frank and her family look over to discover Peter munching crisps. In the next shot, Anne Frank's family look somewhat different, in fact they are a different group of people entirely. (00:06:40)

Death Is a Bitch - S2-E6

Plot hole: As evidenced by the big bar room shootout, even if they couldn't die in this episode, wounds would still show up on your body (if shot with a gun, there would still be a hole). So, when Peter jumped off the building, when he hit the ground he should have been reduced to a fleshy puddle, even if he weren't dead.

Continuity mistake: When Diane Simmons is announcing that she will play Anna, the five little pictures behind her change between shots. (00:11:15)
